The mural, created and designed by Sue, started taking material shape in the recent past. We used the expertise of Chris De Shazo, a well known muralist, to pick the best materials (settled on metal). We painted the pieces, then varnished them. When the mural was ready the next step was to hang it on the west-facing exterior wall of the old printing plant (on the corner of Edith St. and 17th St in Murphysboro, IL). Sue, and Mark figuring out how to transfer the idea of scupltural mural to reality. Cathy and Stephanie join the team the day of the installation. By the end of the afternoon, on June 15th, the mural was pleasantly transforming the space around it, providing the environment with colorful and harmonious shapes. From that moment on, a project that was ours for several months now belonged to everybody.
